Junior Cricket Tour - Update 1

After a long and arduous trip we arrived in London abd immediately set out go see the town. A walking tour ked by our intreoid guide, Mike, took us by Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Downing Street and many other sights. In the afternoon we toured The Tower of London, the scene of many gruesome executions including several of Henry the 8ths wives. We then retreated to our hotel for an early night.

The following mornjng we headed off to Convent Garden for a couple of hours shopping befire heading to Lords fir a training session and a chance neeting with Shane Watson and Chris Rogers.  We then went on a fabulous tour of the home of cricket hearing the ashes story, seeing the famous urn, the long room, players dressing room and hearjng all about the famous Lords "slope". A big thanks to our  tour guide Bob.

From here we travelled back to Picadilly Circus for some shopping and dinner before heading to the  River Thames and going for a spin on the London Eye. Great views despite the rainy weather. Off for our first ganes tomorrow,  looking good at training today so hoping for two good results.
